Would you risk your life by slacklining over an active volcano?

Guinness World Records have shared a video showing a pair of daredevils breaking the record for the longest slackline walk over an active volcano.

Rafael Bridi of Brazil and Alexander Schulz earned the Guinness World Record for the longest slackline walk over an active volcano when they walked 260m across a line suspended 41m over the crater of Mount Yasur, a stratovolcano on Tanna Island in Vanuatu.

What is slacklining?

Slacklining is similar to tightrope walking but uses a cable or polyester belt instead of a taut cord or rope.

Bridi also holds the Guinness World Record for the highest slackline walk after he walked a 17m line suspended between two hot air balloons 1900m over Praia Grande in Santa Catarina, Brazil.
